Looking at Hammerless SxS's.

Handled the SKS, and Baikal, while very nice, seem to light for BP loads at the 60g or more loadings.

Should I consider looking at a Stoeger?

When Colt produced the 2nd generation cap and ball revolvers they also produced black powder accessories kits in all necessary calibers to complete the wooden presentation cases for the guns. Does sombody here know what was the price for these kits and presentation cases?

Dennis Russell's Percussion Colt Revolvers - The Second Generation  collectors handbook and price guide lists the accessories and cases & along with original MSRP and current (as of the 2011 publication date) values.

This year (September 2016) I acquired a used Ruger New Model Single Six in .32 H&R Magnum for use in a Project.
It has a 5-5/8 inch barrel (nominal 5-1/2 inch) so it is shorter than my '.25ACP Project revolver.

My intent is to use this revolver for Testing Development loads for .32 size cartridge sin two families: S&W with a body diameter of 337 inch; and Colt with a body diameter of .318 inch.

Initially my gunsmith and I will be reworking two .22 "RF" cylinders to verify if my intentions are feasible.
After re-cutting and other modifications to chamber a Stainless Steel (SS) one in .32 Long Colt size.
A separate Blued Alloy Steel Cylinder will be re-cut for .32ACP to check margins.

If these Prove out the dimensions and margins, then we will modify the Frame/Barrel and original .2 H&R Mag. cylinder to b interchangeable for use.

Other cartridges contemplated for fitted cylinders are:
  for .318" diameter;
- .32 Extra Short.
- .32 Short/.32 Short Colt
- .32 Extra Long.

  for .337" diameter;
- .32 S&W.
- .32 S&W Long.
- .327 Fed. Mag (modified as the factory loads will NOT fit the modified Frame/Forcing cone Window).

Cases for the Colt family not commercially available will be made from ,32 S&W, .32 S&W long/special, .32 H&R, and .327FM parent brass. by swaging diameters and trimming lengths.

Anyone have suggestions on this Project?

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Have you tried to get "extra" cylinders from Ruger? 
The last I talked to them (2013), they would not sell a blank cylinder, because they want to fit the cylinder to the frame.
Do you have a machinist who can mill out a cylinder from stock?
There used to be one in Omaha who would make 5-shot cylinders for the big-ass cartridges like .458, .460, etc.

I still have the dream of getting a 12" K-Blackhawk in .256 Mag.


Yes, but Ruger customer service says 'not available separately', and also 8-shot cylinders are 'aftermarket' anyway at this time.

There is the "Problem" that IF I send my .25ACP Ruger back to Ruger, FIRST they Will restore it to FACTORY Configuration before it could have any other work done on it.  their Policy is NOT to repair 'modified' firearms unless they are restored to Factory configuration first.

Bummer, but presently I have a "work around" so i am currently'good to go' with this project.

Best Regards,

Saw this linked to on Surplusrifleforum. Krag shooter beat the SMLE barely. While they both might just be a bit (ok, a lot) more athletic than most of us, either Drydock or Pitspitr could easily load and fire a Krag way faster.

I bet we could set up a stage like that at Camp Pitspitr.....
